Keir Ogilvie scratched the 200 fly on day four of the 2021 Canadian Olympic Trials after placing 3rd in the 100 fly on Saturday with a lifetime best time of 53.28. He was ranked 8th in the 200 fly which was his last event of the meet.
The other three event scratches came from 7th seed Sophie Angus, a 5th year at Northwestern, and 8th seed Katja Pavicevic, a UCSD rising junior, in the 200 breast. Both swimmers also scratched the 100 breast on Sunday and this was their last event of the meet.
Like Angus and Pavicevic, Kayla Wilson has scratched all her events so far, the women’s 100 free being the last one.
The women’s 200 breast will see top seeds Kelsey Wog and 2016 Olympian Sydney Pickrem. Both swimmers have already placed top two in an event at this meet, and Pickrem has been pre-selected to make the team in the 200 IM, 200 breast and 400 IM due to her 2019 World Championships finishes.
Wog won the 100 breast final on Sunday.
James Dergousoff and Eli Wall top the heat sheets in the men’s 200 breast, seeded half a second apart. They took 2nd and 3rd place, respectively, in the 100 breast on Sunday to 1st place finisher Gabe Mastromatteo. 19-year-old Mastromatteo is ranked 3rd in this event.
2000-born sprint stars and 2016 Olympic medalists Taylor Ruck and Penny Oleksiak are the top two seeds in the women’s 100 free, followed by the women’s 50 free champion Kayla Sanchez. Oleksiak won gold in this event at the 2016 Rio Olympics, tying Team USA’s Simone Manuel for the win.
In the women’s 200 fly, Mabel Zavaros leads the field by a full second followed by Danielle Hanus and Mary-Sophie Harvey. Zavaros and Hanus took 4th and 5th place, respectively in the 100 fly on Saturday, an event won by Canadian National Record holder Maggie MacNeil.
MacNeil was not entered in this event, but she will race the 100 free today where she is ranked 4th.
Canadian National Record holder Mack Darragh and Montana Champagne lead the men’s version of the event. Darragh made the 200 IM final on Monday, ranked 6th, but chose to scratch it. This is Darragh’s last event of the meet.
To end Tuesday’s prelims session, we will see battles between 2012 Olympic bronze medalist Brent Hayden, Markus Thormeyer, and Yuri Kisil. At 18 years old, #4 seed Joshua Liendo is the youngest in the top 16 of this event, followed closely by #5 seed Finlay Knox.
Hayden and Liendo placed 1-2, respectively, in the 50 free final on Monday night.
